    Fortunately No!

    It's much nicer, and it has better facility's, better clubs and entertainment!
    Get yourself down there.

    Top section is St Magnus and an entertainments programme. Bring it on!!

    not sure about plaing over two days though, is there a prize for best performance under serious hangover conditions?
